Haven’t refreshed the core, casual wardrobe in ~3 years. Used to shop heavily at JCrew and Banana but have heard their quality has dropped dramatically. Where do late 20s/early 30s guys get core pieces like tees, shirts, chinos, shorts, etc.? Preferably with slim fit options.

-Taylor Stitch for Americana / workwear / yeehaw clothing
-Sid Mashburn for tailoring


Bonobos is a step up from JCrew And BR

How much has Walmart’s acquisition of them influenced their quality?
